The dates on which it will be necessary to book and pay a daily entrance ticket to enter Venice will be 29 and not 30 as initially planned.

It is very important to underline that among the excluded categories, guests of hotels in Mestre and Venice are also exempt , as they already pay the tourist tax to the Municipality of Venice.

“It is not a revolution, but the first step in a process that regulates  the access of daily visitors  – said the mayor of Venice Luigi Brugnaro . “ An experiment that has the aim of improving the liveability of the city, of those who live there and those who work there. We will carry it forward with great humility and with the awareness that there may be problems. The margins for error are wide, but we are ready, with humility and courage, to make all the changes needed  to improve the procedure. Venice is the first city in the world to implement this process, which could be an example for other fragile and delicate cities that need to be safeguarded”.

The exemptions

The list of exemptions provided is very important , given that some unclear information has also alarmed tourists who wish to stay in a hotel in Mestre and Venice, guests of hotels in the municipal area are in fact exempt from paying the ticket to visit the city.
